Paper Abstract

A radically different mechanical test, the `distributed strain test,' has been studied theoretically, showing promising results. Owing to the range of loads applied to the fiber, and the convenient data acquisition, the procedure of measurement and evaluation of the fatigue of fiber may be extremely simplified compared to regular tests.
